Amazon Catalyst Grants

Fall Quarter Application Deadline:  November 23, 2016

Information Session:  November 10, 2016 at 6:30 pm in HUB Room 106

Amazon and the University of Washington have teamed up to create Amazon Catalyst, a new program to help you launch your next big idea. If you’ve got a big, bold solution to a problem in the world, we want to hear it.  Amazon Catalyst is NOT a research fund and is not appropriate for basic research. Rather, it is a “project fund”: proposals must address a visible problem in the world and must present a practical solution to that problem. Grants are awarded for up to $100,000 for projects lasting from 3-18 months.

The program is open to all current students, faculty, and staff at the Seattle, Bothell, and Tacoma campuses, and proposals are selected in any field, including the humanities, engineering, the sciences, and the arts. Winners join a community of innovators—Amazon Catalyst Fellows—who share a passion for building solutions to real-world problems.
